Summary: I am loving this camera. It's easy to use, compact and the picture quality is really good. If you want something with excellent quality, try a SRL, which I switch back to my SRL occationally, but this is just a great size.
Great pix, lots of features, but stuck with "memory schtick"

Summary: I've bought several of these little digital cameras over the last 15 years, and this little Sony holds it's own. Of course it has more pixels than the older cameras, however at around 8 mp other things like shutter speed and quality of optics are more important to image quality.
Excerpt: to me this is one of the best point and shoots for 12 megapixels out there . Nothing fantastic but everything very good. The colors are very nice, The cameras ability to sometimes take shots close to a dslr amazes. Problems: the zoom and the shot to shot time could be a tad faster.
Summary: I got this camera as a gift and I think that this camera is cheap(price), but the quality is pretty good. This camera has a pretty decent picture quality, and video quality. It has a large lcd screen, but the bad part is that it covers up the area where a viewfinder usually is.
